San Diego Comic-Con is right around the corner and for those of you going you may be able to participate in one of the coolest events I’ve ever seen! The Walking Dead Escape will be taking over Petco Park July 12th-14th during Comic-Con. As a survivor it will be up to you to run, crawl, jump, and hide to get past the hordes of zombies. You can also pay to be a walker in the event and have your make up done by the company that is responsible for the make up on the show. Spectator tickets are also available if being a walker or a survivor isn’t your thing, but you still want to check it out. For those that are running through the event as survivors you’ll get a little something extra. The first 10000 people that go through as survivors will recieve a special Walking Dead #100 variant drawn by Matt Roberts, who worked with Robert Kirkman on Battle Pope. So if you’re going to San Diego try your luck, see if you can escape from the Walking Dead!
The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego takes place July 12 -15 at Petco Park , centrally located near the San Diego Convention Center . Participants can be a Survivor and race through the zombie infested evacuation zone; a Walker who becomes one of the undead, embracing the inevitable; or a Spectator who watches the apocalypse from sidelines at the Escape Party. The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego is unlike any obstacle course event in the U.S. , expanding on Robert Kirkman’s best-selling The Walking Dead comic book series and graphic novel storylines, allowing Survivors and Walkers to explore the initial days of the apocalypse. Survivors will climb, crawl and slide in an effort to avoid confrontation by hordes of Walkers, while achieving the ultimate adventure on The Walking Dead-themed obstacle course. The Walking DeadEscape is not a race, and Survivors are not timed, but the end is near, and they must move swiftly. If they’re lucky, Survivors will reach the decontamination zone at the end where it will be determined if they have been infected. Participants will be amazed at the interactive displays and The Walking Dead references along the course. Early registration is strongly recommended, as walk-ups may not be available on event day. This summer, The Walking Dead will be taking over Petco Park and fans will have a front row seat to the real-life action event of a lifetime.
